I just had new brakes put on my car. A few days after the brakes were very spongy and felt like they would not work. They also made a loud high pitched noise. My mechanic looked my car over and said it was the brake boosters.

I have had to replace the brake booster, front brakes and rear brakes. There has been several recalls on the 2007 brake boosters for this year/model but apparently Ford will not reimburse me $982.05 because my VIN number wasn't included in the recall. I would like reimbursement for this cost.

I have my car in the shop getting brake booster replaced at $900, Ford has a customer satisfaction program 13N02 that covers newer cars. Looking on-line this issue is prevalent and I believe this should be looked at as a recall, no brakes. Although nearly complete loss of brakes only happened recently I believe this issue may have been building for years. I always noticed other vehicles had (to me) much touchier brakes. I now believe that the other vehicles weren't touchier, it was my car that had low braking. From what I have been reading it seems that this should have been a recall issue years ago but yet it's another cover up by a car manufacturer.

Brake booster leakage, on the highway the brakes actually was so hard to depress when coming up upon a vehicle at the light I had to pump the brakes to get it too stop, ,,,,,so finally the brakes grabbed stopping the vehicle in a sudden stop. The brake padel went to the floor making a whispering sound.

While driving on a straight roadway, I applied the brakes to come to a stop and had to apply extreme pressure to get the vehicle to slow down and come to a dead stop. My 105 lb. Daughter could not have stopped this vehicle in time and would have crashed. I drove slowly to my repair shop, where the mechanic checked the brakes and advised me that the power brake booster had failed and needed to be replaced. He advised me to report this serious and possibly deadly problem to Ford and the federal safety board.

I have a 2007 Ford Edge sel I just bought a couple of months ago and now I have 2 different recalls on plus a brake booster issues with 2 sensors. I was told by my mechanic to make a complaint because there is a lot of Ford Edges with this problem. I have no brakes to stop due to this issue and all three have to be replaced.

Brake booster is failing. I am experiencing poor braking, and hissing noise when I depress brake. There is a customer satisfaction program 13N02 but my VIN does not appear to be part of the program. Looking at various forums, this appears to be a major issue with several years of Ford Edge vehicles impacted. I am requesting that NHTSA look into the matter.

The contact owns a 2007 Ford Edge. While driving various speeds and depressing the brake pedal, the contact had to apply excessive force to the brake pedal to stop the vehicle. In addition, the contact stated that there was a noise coming from the hydraulic brakes. There were no warning indicators illuminated. The failure occurred each time the vehicle was driven. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that it could be a valve or a brake booster failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The dealer (chapman Ford, 9371 roosevelt blvd, philadelphia, pa 19114, phone number: (215) 698-7000) stated that there would be a diagnostic fee. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was contacted and stated that there was no recall. The approximate failure mileage was 65,000.

My 2007 Ford Edge is having the same brake issues as described in the Ford customer satisfaction program 13N02 brake booster issue for Ford Edge 2011-2013. Why isnt this expanded. This is a serious issue. I almost couldnt stop my car twice today! twice! its so scary to be pressing down on it and nothing happening. It has a hissing sound as well. This needs to be recalled! I was driving with my kids at 20 miles an hour, thank goodness it wasnt faster!

Brakes are extremely hard to press, I'm basically having to stand up on them. Then the car still moves forward a little. I cannot let up off the brake at all at a stoplight because the car begins to roll.
